PAINTING OF THE EARLY CHRISTIAN/GNOSTIC WORLD

Jesus said: "Woe to the pharisees, for they are like a dog sleeping in the manger of oxen, for neither does he eat nor does he let the oxen sleep."

Angela Hoffberg I see the best in everything and won't let what others did get me down. Emuna.

Walker Ballantine Oh, I can see the beauty in it... I painted that into it. I see pain and joy...and you're quite right - the fiery power of the Cross. That's one of the things I love about painting: so many things can be indicated at once.

Angela Hoffberg Walker Ballantine True. I am amazed a human being can paint this way. The painting is gorgeous and well done, and people could discuss the meaning forever. How can one person write poems and sayings of wisdom, and also be a talented painter? This wasn't learned. You were born with this wisdom. It was already in you.
